Marian and Mike Linett were and amazing couple to meet and were very professional when it comes to there photography business. There prices were very affordable even on a budget and when you visit them to discuss what you want for your photos in there home they make you feel very welcomed. Marian was the one who was our photographer. She was so nice, funny and very outgoing and her photos for me and my bride came out amazing. She knows what places to take the pictures at the Founders Inn to make the wedding experiance amazing. She even showed up a little early to help out my bride when she was getting ready. I would deffinetly recommend Marian and Mike Linett to be your photographer for your wedding. A Deffinet Five Star with out a doubt..Thank you Marian and Mike Linett You guys are the best!!

Alvin photographed our wedding on 5/30/15. It was an amazing experience. I didn't have to ask him to do any shots. He knew everything to shoot and had it planned so we were never waiting for our picture to be taken. During the reception several pictures were also taken. I'm thrilled to see the outcome. I would recommend him to anyone for any occasion.

Our experience with Jamison Media was excellent. They made us feel like we pick the perfect photographer company to do our wedding. Not only did we love them but our guest loved them as well. These guys created one of the most beautiful wedding videos that I have ever seen. I'm not saying this just because it was our wedding, I'm just being honest. These guys services was so perfect that I believe they should be working with celebrities. They had great / awesome personalities but at the same time they were very professional. If we are ever in need for photographer services I would definitely choose them. Thanks again guys for the awesome job that you did and for creating our wedding memories.

Everyone should hire mrs viki as an event photographer. I hired her to capture my 21st birthday at a hotel. She was extremely patient and understanding when I arrived late to the venue. I had a small meltdown that resulted in a great turnaround because of her fun personality and genuineness. I booked her from 8:30 to 10:30pm and we had a blast. She was well prepared by bringing a variety of backdrops and using different materials. She has many great ideas and is an excellent professional to highlight your event. Once the photos arrive I will be uploading them here. I appreciate you !!

As a family, Denneco has been “the” photographer for our family. He has taken pictures of our play ministry as well. He does not just take pictures, he captures moments that can be relived once you see them again. Photography is not a job for him; it is a “moving ministry”. He also locates places that will flow with the memory that you are trying to capture.

Jim and I shot TFP and he has by far been the most professional photographer I have ever worked with. Him and his assistant made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. He took his time with every shot perfecting the lighting and she assisted with adjusting anything out of place. They are a wonderful team! I would recommend him to everyone.

We chose These Photographers for our engagement and wedding pictures. We were so happy with the pictures and were so pleased with our pictures. We look forward to the wedding. Every time I've had a question (and believe me, I've had a lot of questions) I always get quick responses and no one has ever been rude. I'd highly recommend them. Love them!

I must say the whole experience with Freeze Frame Selfies was AMAZING! Communication was great, as we spoke several times leading up to my wedding. The selfie station was a big hit and a huge success!! Everyone had a blast with all of the different backgrounds and props! The thumb drive was a great addition as we still look at the pictures and laugh! I would recommend Freeze Frame Selfies to anyone!! (5 Stars)

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
